Two cards, two challenges

My 1st card is for the Merry Monday #43 challenge which is a sketch.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

Bright red & light green cardstock.  I used the Martha Stewart Ivy border punch.  The poinsettias from Verve were heat embossed on red with gold embossing powder.  I also added a bright yellow twinkle goosebumps from Queen and Company.  I punched out some red scallop circles and green circles.  The designer paper is from Martha Stewart.  I am also entering this card in the Dynamic Duos colour challenge which is to use light green and red.

I am also entering this card in the Dynamic Duos colour challenge:

I love, love, love how this card turned out.  I used a framed embossing folder and punched out a gazillion leaves in 3 shades of green cardstock with a Martha Stewart Punch.  I got the idea for the bow from this tutorial on Split Coast Stampers.  Some red and green rhinestones added a perfect touch of bling.

The wreath card will be sent to a very special family but can't say who as they read my blog.  So, that's 2 more Christmas cards done!

Thanks for stopping by!
